Tombstone Arizona

Tombstone is one of those places I love coming back to again and again. Sure, it has its share of tourist gimmicks, but beneath all that there is some real unspoiled history and architecture here. Today we browsed the courthouse museum, a two story victorian structure built in 1882.

The gallows behind the courthouse left me with a bit of a chill as well as that Old West feeling.

There were more street performers and horses than I've seen on previous visits. Perhaps this is because of the Christmas and New Years holidays. This photo was a rare photo op., seven horses at the hitching post and the stagecoach coming in.

This is a tourist trap I can enjoy. Lunch at Big Nose Kate's Saloon with live music and dancing.

Now, that's a serious mug of beer!

Why let them come in at all?
